I have a question about the recipe "My Classic Burger with Special Sauce" from Ashley Rodriguez. What is correct proportion for burger size?

Hi Darlene, it looks like this has come up before, I'm sorry there hasn't been a definitive answer to it yet. The good news is, you can choose which works better for you: either divide the mixture in 4 and have slightly larger burgers, or go by the 4 oz directive and get more patties.
Thank you. I made this last night and I went with bigger burgers. I did not use a full 28 oz of ground beef. My package was about 1 1/3 lbs and it made four good sized, nice, juicy burgers.
Glad to hear it worked out okay for you!

How did you like the special sauce, Darlene?
I use a 1/2 cup measure for making burgers and it works out to approximately 1/4 pound per person.
Makes it very fair when you are portioning for a huge crowd!
